MITCHELL HARRISON TAKES HIS FIRST PODIUM AT THE GLEN HELEN GRAND PRIX 

The Yamalube Star Racing Yamaha rookie, Mitchell Harrison, has really shown progress towards the end of the motocross season.  Harrison, once again, had two consistently strong races against some of the best international competition, at the final round of the Grand Prix Series.  He was able to finish fifth in both races, which awarded him third place overall. Mitchell’s podium allows Yamalube Star Racing Yamaha to maintain it’s 100% MX podium success rate for 2016.  The team has had at least one rider on the podium for every MX event it has competed in this year.

YAMALUBE STAR RACING YAMAHA’S COOPER WEBB TAKES THE OVERALL WIN AT THE MXGP IN CHARLOTTE

Cooper Webb and Mitchell Harrison competed in MX2 class, at the penultimate round of the MXGP series, which was held in Charlotte, NC.  Rain cancelled Friday’s usual schedule, so qualifying was moved to Saturday, before the evening’s main event.  The North Carolina native, Webb, came close to a win in the first race when he was about to make a pass for the lead, but got held up as the leader went down.  He ended up second.  A bad start set him back in the second race, but with the crowd cheering him on, he made a spectacular come-back and took the race win.  Webb took the overall win; finishing his 250 motocross career on a high.  Mitchell Harrison came from a seventeenth place start, in the first race, to finishing ninth.  Harrison backed up his first result, with a seventh place finish and took seventh overall.  Mitchell Harrison will compete in the final round of the series, which will be held at Glen Helen on September 10 & 11.

YAMALUBE STAR RACING YAMAHA FINISHES THE SEASON ON A HIGH

The 2016 motocross season has been Star’s most successful yet.  Yamalube Star Racing Yamaha wrapped up the season in Indiana with more impressive results.  Three of Star’s riders tied, on 38 points, for second, but it was Aaron Plessinger who claimed the second overall spot after winning the second moto.  The newly appointed champ, Cooper Webb took a few spills on the muddy track.  He went five-two, to finish third overall.  Alex Martin finished third in the first moto, but his fourth place finish in the second moto, gave him fourth overall.  Mitchell Harrison backed up his previous week’s top-ten second moto finish, with more consistently strong rides.  He went ten-six, and finished seventh overall.

COOPER WEBB WRAPS UP THE CHAMPIONSHIP AT BUDDS CREEK

The Lucas Oil Pro Motocross championship has not been an easy one to win, for the two-time supercross champion, Cooper Webb.  Webb was not in contention for the championship in 2015 after missing many rounds due to injury.  He then went into the 2016 season with a wrist injury.  Webb’s sheer determination and commitment seemed turned things around for him.  He got stronger and stronger with each passing race, which put him in a position to win the title with one round to go.  At this round, Webb’s title worthiness was tested to the max, as he had to come right from the back in both motos, to gain enough points for the win.  Webb amazingly came through to sixth in the first moto and third in the second, which granted him a well-deserved title win. 

Alex Martin won the first moto, and finished fourth in the second.  He was back up on the podium with a second place overall finish.  Plessinger took sixth overall and Harrison finished twelfth overall.  The rookie had his best moto yet; finishing eighth in the second moto. Jeremy Martin’s injury did not allow him to race.

Unadilla, NY, August 13, 2016

WEBB TAKES THE OVERALL AND PLESSINGER HAS HIS BEST FINISH OF THE SEASON

The Yamalube Star Racing Yamaha team returned to the series eager to get results, after having two weeks off from racing.  The day started on a high, when it was announced that two Star riders, Cooper Webb and Alex Martin, would represent team USA at the Motocross of Nations.  After that the results began to flow, as Alex Martin qualified in pole position.  Cooper Webb then went on to win both motos, and Aaron Plessinger went three-three, for second overall; his first overall podium of the season.  Alex Martin crashed in both motos but was able to salvage seventh overall. Harrison crashed out in the first moto and finished seventeenth in the second; taking twenty-first overall.  The team’s defending champ, Jeremy Martin, was sadly missed at Unadilla after an injury kept him from racing.
